Course recommendations
They cancelled almost all of the classes I was to take after I arrived in Sweden. They only had one book for an entire class to use, this was the norm in all of my classes. They need to structure the Swedish classes properly to enable us to learn tenses correctly.

Go snowboarding, go to Norway, try jumping into a frozen lake after sitting in a sauna in the middle of winter-it's a wonderful feeling. Try stockholm university, there are more student activities there.
